  1. Isn’t it amazing how effective a senator Franken has become in such a short time? I never would have predicted it.

  2. Morning peeps,
    Agreed hippie, Franken has turned out be a great senator.

    You cannot buy publicity like this.

    The third link does fit well.

    Maybe cartoon from FDR era? (Railroads were that day’s Wall Street.)


  7. From today’s “I have no shame” corner of the internet:

    Terrific opening statement by Al Franken.

    Citizens United decision and how it potentially undermines our democracy, in plain English.

      Here’s what I wish Kagen had said yesterday while Sessions was speaking of Thurgood Marshall:

      ” Senator Sessions, Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, we get it that you, your daddy and your daddy’s daddy were named for Confederate president Jefferson Davis and Confederate general P.G.T. Beauregard. So we understand it’s difficult to hide your bigotry. But honestly, do you think dissing Justice Marsall is gonna curry any favor with Black voters in Alabama? “

  9. Top of the morning peeps, thankfully the heat spell we’ve been having here in NYC has come to an end!

  10. you’re for Bennet right d?

    • dnd

      Yeah Brian, I’m for Bennet. His temperament is better suited to the job, though Romanoff’s ego might fit with the current bunch 😉

  12. And it’s really fun to watch isn’t it doots?

    does anyone have an explanation why the pundits etc say the repugs will take the 2010 elections when all they do is filibuster and prevent the common people (unemployed etc) from getting benefits for the 4th time? Also for cutting physicians pay 21%?I guess I’m really naive ( also a bit tipsy at the moment) but I just don’t understand why repugs are so full of shit and don’t seem to care about anyone except big business and the wealthy. Yes, I get tipsy in Utah – especially at the Embassy Suites free cocktail hour. Happy July 1st to everyone.

  15. Bev…. my cynical response is that most people are not paying a lot of attention right now, and will believe the right-wing lies the closer we get to the election.

    This having been said, I am moderately confident dems will retain the senate – and even have some hope they will retain the house. Nate Silver has done some pretty good statical modeling over at 538.com – and it suggests that the GOP will gain seats as the out-of-office party always does – but it won’t be a landslide.

    okay, hippieprof just sent me over here and dammit you people look like fun and I do not have the time!

  17. dog's eye view

    Bev: agreed. Pundits’ predictions make no sense to me, mainly because we are in such unsettled times AND the party out of power delivered us to disaster. It’s not like they’re a reasonable alternative.

    Why they’re anticipated to pick up the usual number of seats makes NO sense to me whatsoever.

    If anything, the teapartiers schooling like fish in the primaries and putting up not ready for prime time candidates has got to be a major help.

    What I hear in the news and what I see on the ground.

    Never so much a disconnect as now.

    Welcome Moe.

    Hope you will find a little time for us!

  20. Morning peeps,
    Welcome Moe
